Not my usual type of book, but with references to Jen Lancaster, I really held out hope this one would get better. It didn't. I was hoping for some Lancaster-worthy wit and hijinks, but instead it was just tales of woe concerning having to plan a lavish wedding...it's a hard life.

Running of the Bride by Rachel Eddey
239 pages
4/5 stars

I am still on my funny girl memoir kick. Actually, just a memoir kick in general. They are quick reads, which is perfect for summer and my busy schedule. (And yes, I’m super busy – I work three jobs and am trying to cultivate a steady freelance business. You can be busy without a husband and kids, for all the naysayers who can’t fathom how I could possibly be so busy).

Anyway, Running of the Bride is the perfect beach book. It tells the story

I got this book free through Goodreads First Reads.
Rachel fusses, panics, frets, and worries her way to a beautiful wedding. Along the way she wins dance lessons because she says she can't, two wedding dresses, and a honeymoon in Aruba. This is one lucky lady.
I've never been involved with planning a wedding (I eloped) so I really had no idea how difficult it was. No wonder brides get weepy and grooms want to run and hide.
I took this book with me while on vacation and had loads of fun reading it

The author grabbed my attention at BEA in a good way & I'm excited to read this... We have 6 degrees of separation... I've worked many benefits with SJP (&Matthew Broderick), have a friend that worked forSJP & am related by marriage to someone who worked on the set of SATC, lol. One thing, I was engaged in friggin' Hershey! Lol

This book was laugh-out-loud funny in spots, and many of the situations will be familiar to every bride. But it was a little pretentious and hard to relate to all the special perks that this bride-to-be enjoyed. Free honeymoon, free reception, free dress, free dance lessons, and not one but two appearances on TV.

If you are planning a wedding or just got married, run to the closest bookstore or hop online and order this book - cute, funny and the perfect read! I read this book, the weekend before I got married in two sittings and wanted to read half of it aloud to my sweet, sweet groom who's to do list, is quite longer than mine at this point!!

This book was truly one of those laugh out loud funny books. I love the style in which Rachel Eddey wrote this book. It had those sweet, touch your heart parts, but they didn't weigh down the overall lightness of the book. This is a book I would recommend to anyone, not just someone planning a wedding or getting married. I hope to see more books from Rachel Eddey in the near future.

This book is hilarious. It starts with Rachel on the movie set of "Sex and the City" and in front of the whole cast her boyfriend asking her to marry him. It goes on from there. This is a must-read book that you will recommend to your friends.

Got this book free from Goodreads First Reads. A quick read, at times it was entertaining. Her wedding and the planning of it was very different from my own wedding and what I wanted (although a free trip to Aruba would have been nice!) so it was a little hard for me to relate to her.

I received this book through GoodReads' First Reads! --
Not the usual type of book I would read but this book was hilarious and fantastic! Great book. Especially because I will be getting married in 12 days the book tells me... I am crazy but definitely not bride-zilla.

You need to know that I don't usually read memoirs. My daughter just got married and suggested I read this one. It is okay, I guess. Just not my favorite kind of book.
